The illuminating concealer that'll make you look wide awake, even when you're dying for a nap.

Concealers are wonderful for covering up imperfections. Pimples, dark circles, blemishes — concealer is the bomb.

But there are times when you might need a little more help, especially in the under-eye area.

Enter: illuminator. More specifically, concealer illuminators. They brighten, they lighten, and they are the next product you need to put on your shopping list.

The one I am very much in love with right now is T By Terry Touch Expert Advanced. This is a multi-corrective brush and it illuminates dark areas wonderfully. Don’t take my word for it — look:

Left = no prod. Right - magical prod. (Image: supplied.)

Look at this wondrous product in action! I have concealer on both eyes, and then added illuminator to the right eye.

After you dab concealer on, apply the illuminator product over the top, and dab into the skin.

It illuminates the whole area and blends right in.

However, make sure you match it to your skin tone — there are six different shades, and the wonderful people at Mecca can help you find the perfect one for you.

The result is fresh, wide-awake skin. It'll make you look as though you've had a solid eight hours of sleep when in fact you feel like crawling into the foetal position and having a nap under your desk

My verdit? Five stars.
